The Martensville Messenger would like to take a moment to congratulate the Martensville & District Kinsmen Club (MKC) on their incredible 30 years of service and $1 million given back to the communities that they serve.
The Kinsmen Club celebrated this amazing accomplishment by hosting an event on Friday, February 22nd in the Kin Room at the Martensville Sports Centre. The evening began with a delicious meal prepared by one of the founding members of our local Kinsmen Club; Steve Smith. Smith has been a devoted member of the group since its inception 30 years ago when him and four other local residents decided that the community could benefit from the addition of a Kinsmen Club. Because of this decision and the dedication that came with it, Martensville and other surrounding communities have seen enormous support from the Kinsmen Club and have been treated to numerous events held by the Kinsmen Club in order to raise money for TeleMiracle.
Following dinner, a program was organized by MKC Secretary James Dietrich, who took some time to honour Smith and other members that have been involved for a large number of years. Other speakers were invited up to discuss the impact the Kinsmen Club has had on the community, and reminisce about the past 30 years of supporting Martensville and the surrounding area.
“There were many great stories, a lot of laughs and possible a tear or two shed. All in all this evening was made possible by all hands on deck by our club and the never ending support from the community and surrounding area. Thank you all from the Martensville and District Kinsmen Club! Serving the communities greatest needs for 30 years with over $1 million given back,” the club stated on their Facebook page – ‘Martensville & District Kinsmen’.
